On Wednesday 18th October, six of Bradford’s Catholic Primary schools arrived at St Bede’s and St Joseph’s Catholic College to take part in a fantastic afternoon of TAG Rugby. The weather was kind and the competition was thoroughly enjoyable for all involved. TAG rugby is a fast and entertaining sport that gives children a chance to show their speed, agility and power whilst removing the tackling part of the game.
There were competitions for U11 and U9 on mini-pitches and refereed exceptionally well by our Y13 Sport students. 5 schools entered the U11 competition and played a round-robin tournament; where they all play each other. It was hotly contested with the trophy being shared between St Mary’s and St Peter’s and St Joseph’s (Bingley).
The U9 competition was a straight final between St Cuthbert’s and St Winefride’s. St Winefride’s took the victory in a great game. The young people then had chance to practise some of the key skills under the watchful eyes of the Sports Leaders.
Many thanks to all the schools that came and especially to the teachers and support staff for bringing them:
St Joseph’s (Bingley).
